Report of a Survey to Determine the Educational Needs of Papago Children and Adults with Recommendations for the Fulfillment of Those Needs.
Stout, Irving W.; Moore, Josiah
Interview findings, analysis of the findings, and recommendations for further action (with suggested proposals) are contained in this report of a 1965 survey wherein 538 Papago families, representing each district of the Papago Indian Reservation, were interviewed. The survey, part of an overall plan leading to a community action program funded under the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964, gathered information on such factors as parents' schooling and use of English; present occupation, work training, and work experience; the villages; the homes; the people; and the children. In the report, the 3 groups of recommendations (approximately 20) based on the findings are those having to do with work, those dealing directly with education, and those having direct bearing on methods of carrying out the recommendations for work and education. Among the suggested proposals to be prepared and submitted to the Office of Economic Opportunity are those which will result in an economic, legal, and engineering audit of the possibility for work opportunities on the reservation; a self-help training program designed to make it possible for persons to keep up their homes and their home equipment; preschools; additional parent-child centers; adult education programs; development of community planning and action; and leadership recruitment and training.
